HOLLYWOOD (CNS) - UFC fighter Tony Ferguson was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving after his pickup truck crashed into some parked vehicles in Hollywood Sunday morning and overturned, authorities said.

Paramedics dispatched to the scene were able to extricate Ferguson and a front seat passenger from the overturned Chevrolet Silverado. The pair escaped with minor injuries and were not taken to a hospital, the Los Angeles Police Department's Media Relations Division reported.

The crash occurred at 1:47 a.m. in the area of Sunset Boulevard and Wilcox Avenue, where Ferguson initially refused to take a breath analyzer test, according to authorities.

He was booked on suspicion of DUI at the LAPD's Hollywood station, and his bail was set at $30,000. It was not immediately clear if he was still in custody or was able to make bail.
